zombieland reviews 10 Ridiculously Fun Horror Films For Halloween

Zombieland is for anyone who loves zombies, an insane Woody Harrelson, and a classic boy-meets-girl, and together they kill masses of rabid un-dead, coming-of-age love story. In addition, as mentioned above, the film has one of the best cameos and ensuing death-scenes ever conceived.

The death scene is not only ideally suited to its recipient, Bill Murray, in that it is surprising, dry, quick and witty, but it completely pays off an earlier moment in the film. One of the things that bothered me in the first half of the movie, was that neither of the ruthless zombie killers, Columbus or Tallahassee, killed the allegedly zombie bitten Little Rock on the spot. The Bill Murray cameo, and kill scene, simultaneously pokes fun at the genre and makes up for the potential inconsistency in the Little Rock/ Wichita introduction scene.

  1. Young Frankenstein was a good film and so was Zombieland. The others were complete crap.

    As for the Rocky Horror Picture Show, yes, it wasn’t a brilliant film, but as far as musicals go, it was one that I didn’t find stupid and boring as hell. You want to talk about crappy films? How about Grease? Grease was awful and as most musicals go the songs were idiotic.

    I for one cannot understand the fascination with Grease, yet a film like Rocky Horror gets put through the wringer. Then again, most people are followers and will simply say how they don’t like something because it’s the in thing to do.

    I for one, think for myself, and I enjoyed the flick for what it was: A silly take on classic horror films. But let’s look at it this way, if the Rocky Horror Picture Show was so terrible, then why is it still discussed today?

    • The article is titled “10 Ridiculously Fun ‘Horror’ Films For Halloween.” Why the heck would you watch Grease on Halloween?!

      RHPS is a cult classic. It is beloved by fans. You’re not going to meet anyone here who hates it, (obviously, since it made the list).

      Plus, saying you hate musicals doesn’t make a good argument on why people should love *your* favorite musicals. It’s essentially admitting that you know nothing about the genre. It’s a wonder you don’t think Grease 2 is worse than Grease. Momma Mia was also hard to sit through. So was Across the Universe.

  2. Hi

  3. This is a great list! Thanks!
